The World’s Most Coveted Masterpiece

The Van Eyck brothers painted this unique altarpiece in 1432. It is the highlight of the Flemish Primitives and a milestone in art history. The Polyptych survived the Protestant Iconoclasm, fell into French hands under Napoleon and was requisitioned by Nazi Germany during the Second World War. But it has now been hanging peacefully for more than 50 years in the place where it belongs: St. Bavo’s Cathedral. Though admittedly, the ‘Just Judges’ panel, which was stolen in 1934, is still replaced by a reproduction.

The restoration of “The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb”, started in September.

For centuries, the world has admired The Ghent Altarpiece, the famous triptych by the Van Eyck brothers, in awe. However, the restoring team believes that the triptych as we know it is not the original painting from 1432.
